Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invansion, Metinvest Group has provided almost 500,000 liters of fuel to various units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) and territorial defense. Metinvest.Media’s press release informs about it.
“Ukrainian soldiers continue to defend state borders and cities from the onslaught of Russian invaders. Thanks to our defenders, in the most difficult time for the country, Metinvest companies are able to work where it is relatively safe to pay taxes and support the national economy. Therefore, one of the main directions of the company’s Steel Front is assistance to the military,” the message says.
In particular, the company’s enterprises deliver fuel for military vehicles and equipment. This is a significant support for the army, especially in the conditions of shortages in the fuel market, which was most acutely felt in the first months of the war.
“The hearts of our defenders are burning with thirst to win and cleanse Ukraine of enemies. And we made sure that the Armed Forces had cars with full tanks of fuel. This war is built on mobility, maneuverability and the ability to stay one step ahead of the enemy. That is why we also provide the military with technological drones and thermal imagers,” commented Yuriy Ryzhenkov, CEO of Metinvest Group.
As GMK Center reported earlier, in general, Metinvest directed more than UAH 1.9 billion to the needs of the army, support of the national economy, assistance to employees and civilians.
Also, the Metinvest group handed over a modern drone and 1.5 thousand bulletproof vests, plates for which are produced at its own enterprises, to the military personnel of the National Guard of Ukraine. Before that, Metinvest Group handed over a batch of drones worth UAH 3 million to the Main Intelligence Directorate (MID).
